Due to the fact that in chronic diseases, a spiritual crisis appears in the individual, this study was therefore conducted to investigate the effect of spiritual health on resilience in patients undergoing hemodialysis.

Furthermore, 6 patients (4.6%) had low resilience, 95 patients (73.1%) had medium and 29 patients (22.3%) had high resilience.
